Meg Myers Comes to Music Hall of Williamsburg September 15

Rock singer Meg Myers

Crowned a genuine rock goddess” by the Associated Press, Meg Myers is a singer songwriter with cathartic and healing music. The Tennessee native takes her most recent release, Take Me To The Disco —  a dark-pop effort at reclaiming her painful past through menacing tunes — on the road for her national tour. Hit songs include “Lemon Eyes,” “Desire,” and the newly released “Numb.”

“I came from this grunge, punk-rock background, but I always wanted to write catchy pop songs,” Myers says. “I just didn’t have the technical knowledge to make them work. But I grew up listening to well-crafted songs. I loved Sting, Led Zeppelin, Dire Straits, James Taylor and Fleetwood Mac. That’s what I was drawn to. I love the simplicity of a great song, I just didn’t realize how hard that was to capture in a recording. That’s why working with Rosen is so great. It was like, ‘Okay, I found this guy I can write songs with and who is really good at turning everything into pop, while still letting me be myself.'”

You can catch Myers at the Music Hall of Williamsburg (66 North 6th Street) on October 1. Doors open at 7:30; concert starts at 8:30 with Adam Jones opening. Tickets are just $20!
